Last week, we revealed our stunning June/July issue starring model (and bride-to-be) Arlenis Sosa and now we're giving you an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how our gorgeous cover look came together!

Set in a sunny waterfront locale, Sosa was picture-perfect in a laser-cut floral-printed Carolina Herrera ballgown. Rocking a totally au natural beauty look her sweet smile and breezy hairdo nearly one-ups the dress. Not to mention the classic rose bouquet and simple pearl-drop earrings.

Shot in Coral Gables, Florida our cover model Arlenis was all smiles when it came time to get down to business. Donning gowns for both the cover and our "A Breath of Fresh Air" spread the model, who was posing for us three months ahead of her own wedding, couldn't be more thrilled to wear all of the pretty bridal gowns.

Next, Arlenis is having a ball in her chiffon-topped gown. Playing with the movement of the skirt, it looks like Arlenis could twirl and twirl forever in this gorgeous Carolina Herrera design. The perfect blend of structure and breeziness, Arlenis proves this dress is great for the girl who wants to wear a nod towards tradition on her big day but also wants to incorporate something fun and flirty.
